You are encouraged to register early to guarantee your spot. *If you are not yet a KPBS member and wish to take advantage of the special KPBS member rate, visit KPBS and join prior to registering for the event.
About the Book and Author
Lisa Napoli was in the grip of a mid-life crisis when a chance encounter led her to the adventure of a lifetime. Leaving behind her job in public radio and her life in Los Angeles, she moved to the tiny Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan to volunteer at the country's first youth radio station. Along the way, she found the world is a beautiful and complicated place, and learns to appreciate life in a way she never imagined.
